I'm a hot mess but I'm trying to be greatful. I'm alive, awake and functional (sort of). Not still stuck in a hospital and on the road to better days. Have pics but I totally don't have the energy to post them. Can hardly stay awake to type this.
Surgery went well I'm told. 6 hours as exptected. I started to have a lot of swelling on the table, so I'm swollen much more than normal. But the OS says everyone reacts differently and my tissues are just really sensitive. Unfortunately I also have a lot of swelling in my joint, so my jaw is kind of out of place and very painful. it feels dislocated and the surgeon says it should goback into place once the swelling goes down. for now, lots of steriods, lots of ice, and as much pain medication as I'm allowed. Hoping it all works out cuz this kinda sucks right now. Every muscle in my body from my waist up hurts and my face is KILLING me. Hopefully the swelling goes down soon so I can swallow better. right now I have to swallow with my head back, just using my tounge because my jaw won't close. good times!!
Still working on greatful.
